In the not-so-distant past, we had no option but
to visit the hospital if we feel sick.
Notwithstanding how many difficulties one may
face in traveling if the patient wanted to see
the doctor, they must go to the doctor. Then an
almost utopia-like idea of Telemedicine came
along, wherein people could consult with the
doctor from their smartphones, eliminating the
need for traveling. This remote consultation with
the doctor is facilitated by telemedicine app
  • Telemedicine app development is the process of
    developing an Android app, an iOS app, and/or a
    Website to provide the facility of telemedicine.
    Telemedicine utilizes various technologies to
    diagnose and treat patients from a distance. It
    also refers to the use of such technologies for
    the purpose of medical education.
  • Telemedicine is a part of Telehealth
  • It is important not to confuse Telemedicine with
    Telehealth. Telehealth is an all-encompassing
    term that includes most of the digital health
    solutions like Telemedicine, Remote Patient
    Monitoring, Telemonitoring, etc.
  • Telemedicine refers to the platform that enables
    the interaction between doctor and patient.
    Telemedicine is strictly used in clinical
    practices, whereas Telehealth is used for
    clinical as well as non-clinical administrative
    services. Patient training, use in academia,
    usage of various sensors, etc., fall under this

  • The wide adoption of telemedicine is fairly
    recent its advent is not so new. The first use
    of Telemedicine, although not so advanced, dates
    back to as far as the 1960s.
  • The first documented use of telemedicine is that
    of the University of Nebraska in 1959. The
    universitys clinicians set up a two-way
    television transmission to transfer information
    and later linked it with a hospital to conduct
    video consultation. After this first successful
    demonstration, NASA partnered with Lockheed to
    provide telehealth services to astronauts in
    space. This partnership lasted till 1970 and
    resulted in STARPAHC (Space Technology Applied to
    Rural Papago Advanced Health Care) program.
  • Since the past few decades, Telemedicine is
    gradually advancing and being used sparingly.
    Fast forward today, over 90 of healthcare
    providers submit that their organizations have a
    working telemedicine app or they are developing

Why is everyone talking about Telemedicine now?
  • Telemedicine is now the talk of the town, and
    there are many reasons behind that. Watch is
    this video to know the reasons why do you need

    revolutionizing the healthcare industry by
    reducing gaps in healthcare. It is providing
    uninterrupted communication between the patient
    and the doctor.
  • This is the perfect time to implement
    a Telemedicine app in your hospital or
    clinic as demand is still growing, and it is
    expected to grow even further. What this video
    on how to implement Telemedicine?

But why now?
  • The COVID-19 massively restricted peoples
    movement, and thus it was necessary to provide
    attention to care from a distance. This allowed
    healthcare providers to expand their service
  • The forecast for telehealth from the year 2014-22
    can be seen here.
  • A report from Market Research Future forecasts
    the growth of the telemedicine market at a CAGR
    of 16.5 till 2023. The latest report from
    the Global Market Insights report predicts
    telemedicine market valuation at 130.5 billion
    by 2025 from the present valuation of 38.3
    billion. Read this blog to know how Telemedicine
    plays a significant role in healthcare as well as
    global market growth.

Which Technologies are used In Telemedicine App
  • Telemedicine incorporates many advanced
    technologies to deliver high-quality care. The
    programming part needs different technology
    combinations for the front-end, back-end,
    database, data management, and communication. It
    requires an additional mechanism to add
    integrations like 3rd party payment gateways,
    EHR, HMS, ERP, EMR, etc.
  • The detailed discussion of technologies used for
    making a successful telemedicine app development
    entails a blog of its own, so let us quickly go
    through the widely used technologies for
    designing the software.

  • Choose frameworks that are compatible with
    multiple platforms so that your app runs smoothly
    on Android, iOS, and Web. This is vital to serve
    a broader user base. 
  • Design your app keeping users in mind. Stuffing
    unnecessary extra features overwhelm the user and
    spoil the user experience.
  • Add integrations with wearable devices to gather
    real-time health data.

We just skimmed through the list of programming
languages, frameworks, and other gateways. Now
let us look at the trending core technologies
that are widely used in Telemedicine App
  • 5G The fifth generation of cellular connectivity
    provides high-speed internet and higher bandwidth
    at lower latency, ideal for providing
    uninterrupted video connection.
    Their specification sheet shows the top speed of
    around 20 Gbps per mobile base station. These
    faster speeds allow doctors to use 4k resolution
    webcams that provide a crystal clear view of the
    patient remotely. Such high-quality virtual
    consultation makes it feel like a traditional
    in-person visit.
  • Blockchain Blockchain defends critical patient
    data against hackers. The distributed ledger
    technology coupled with private keys and encoding
    can secure patient records and optimize the
    healthcare supply chain.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
    (ML) Cutting-edge data-driven technologies like
    AI and ML learn or improve from examples and try
    to mimic human decision-making. They have the
    potential of reducing and even eliminating the
    likelihood of disease by enhancing early
    diagnosis. AI and ML improve by analyzing large
    databases like patient medical history, medical
    data. Read about how AI plays a vital role in
    healthcare services.
  • Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality
    (VR) AR and VR programs have the potential of
    advancing medical imaging and healthcare
    outcomes, and thats why they are hailed as the
    next big thing in telemedicine. It has the
    potential of improving healthcare outcomes
    by 30-40. To understand why AR and VR are termed
    as the future of telemedicine, watch this
    brilliant video.
  • Internet of Things (IoT) IoT is a network of
    physical devices running on the internet. It
    utilizes computer chips and electronic sensors to
    monitor devices collecting and sharing data
    wirelessly. It is crucial in transmitting data
    from the devices wirelessly in real-time,
    allowing healthcare professionals to know whether
    there is a need for urgent medical attention.

By utilizing all these promising technologies,
telemedicine can scale more heights and improve
the healthcare landscape by reducing the overall
cost, improving the quality of care, and
more.Advice Let your telemedicine platform
evolve with time by using these technologies.
Impact of Telemedicine
  • The inception of telemedicine holds many promises
    in solving various healthcare challenges faced by
    both patients and doctors. Telemedicine has
    boosted accessibility of healthcare globally, and
    thus the adoption of mHealth apps.
  • mHealth Adoption  Increased adoption of mHealth
    apps allows users self-management of their
    overall wellness, including disease prevention
    and management.The total number of active
    mHealth apps available to users is now more than
    1,65,000. The uses of mHealth apps are many. They
    can be used to provide information to patients in
    text, audio, or video formats, remind patients,
    record their health conditions, or provide
    guidance for further diagnosis.
  • Globalization Theres no denying the fact that
    telemedicine has truly globalized healthcare. A
    patient sitting in one corner of the world can
    interact with the doctor sitting in the opposite
    corner of the world provided they both have a
    reliable internet connection. Thus telemedicine
    has removed barriers in accessing healthcare by
    removing constraints of geographical boundaries.

Telemedicine can be offered via different modes
of communication. Lets have a look at the most
prevailing modes of Telemedicine.
  • Online Consultation
  • In this mode, Patients can connect with the
    doctor virtually for medical consultation. There
    is no need to step outside for that. It is
    further divided into three categories.
  • Video Consultation
  • This model allows the doctor to perceive the
    visual cues of the patient. And makes patient
    identification easier. This mode of consultation
    needs high-speed, reliable internet to function.
  • Audio Consultation
  • For treatment under this model, no separate
    infrastructure is necessary as it can be done via
    a phone call. This can be helpful in an emergency
    case where there is a lack of reliable internet
    connection. This mode is not suitable for
    conditions where visual inspection is required.
  • Text-based Consultation
  • This type of consultation can be done via SMS,
    E-mail, Chatbox, Smartphone Apps, or other
    methods. This practice is adopted for follow-ups
    and documentation purposes. It is not suitable
    for other purposes.

What are the Benefits of Telemedicine App
Development for all stakeholders?
  • The adoption of telemedicine benefits all the
    stakeholders involved, whether you are a doctor,
    a patient, or you run a hospital.
  • Let us briefly look at the benefits offered by
    telemedicine for patients, doctors, and hospitals.
